1. Create your bio link
To make a bio link, head to the “Create link” green button at the top right of your link feed. Select “Bio” and then “Continue”.
On the next page, you can set-up your bio link using the following fields:
Title: This will be featured at the top of your landing page. It could be your artist name or the name of a project.
Tags: Add internal tags to help you organize your bio link in your Linkfire dashboard. These tags are not displayed to visitors.
Link: This is the URL you will share with your fans. Customize it by changing the subdomain or short code (you might want to use artist name or brand name).
When you’re done, click “Create link”. You now have the option to customize the sections of your bio link.
2. Customize your bio link
In the “General” tab you can edit the information that was previously added when creating the link. Here’s also a short description that you can use to introduce itself.
In this tab you can also add your different social profiles that will be listed under the “Follow” button on your bio link. Choose from the list and manually add the URL of your social profiles.
NOTE: To get a "Preview" of your bio link, you need to first publish it, and then open it on in a new tab. Click the URL in the header as highlighted below to check out your link.
Your bio link microsite is divided into different sections named tiles, and all of them can be customized.
All bio link tiles are listed under the “Tiles” section. That is where you edit the content of each tile and the order in which they will appear on the bio link landing page.
Promoted (not available on free subscriptions)
“Promoted” is the tile that will be featured at the top of your bio link. Use it to highlight your most important current promotion. Choose a powerful image that will catch your fans’ attention.
Music (for Pro, Business and Premium clients only)
In this tile, you can add Linkfire links to your releases, pre-releases, and playlists.
First, choose a title for your “Music” section, for example “Latest releases.” Then simply enter your already published Linkfire link into the “Releases” field and click “Add”.
The maximum number of links is 10. You can remove links in order to add new ones by clicking on the trash icon next to the links:
You can also reorder the different links by dragging and dropping using the icon with 3 lines.
Store (for Pro, Business and Premium clients only)
You can manually add merchandise to your bio link in the “Store” tile. Choose a title for this section under “Title”. ”For example, you could choose “Merch” or your artist name followed by “store”. Optionally, you can redirect fans to your webstore by adding the link in the field “Store URL”.
The merch items need to be added manually, and won’t be fetched from your web store directly. To add them you need to fill out all the following sections: “Image”, “Title”, “Price” and the “Product URL”. When you are done click on “Add” and keep adding more products. You can add up to 5.
As in the previous section, you can drag and drop the articles to show them in your preferred order, or delete them by clicking on “Remove item”:
Tour (for Pro, Business and Premium clients only)
Share your next concerts by adding your Linkfire Ticket link to your bio link.
You can customize the “Tour name”, “Tour artist,” and the call to action button that fans will click to access your tour dates.

“Favorites” is the most customizable section of your bio link, where you can share any content not covered in the other tiles. It could be anything you want, from a new music video to a recently published interview.
Under “Title” choose a headline that best describes your Favorites tile, and add up to 5 links by entering a tile and a valid URL.
Drag and drop the items to show them in your preferred order, or delete the ones you don’t want by clicking on “Remove item”.
